Meat processing business affected by ASF cases

Polish meat producers had to trim their exports by some 20% or by EUR 80 million in H1 due to the African swine flu cases among wild boars in eastern Poland and the declines might become even deeper after cases of the disease among pigs have been recorded in the same region.

Last week Polish veterinary authorities confirmed first cases of deadly ASF in domestic pigs in eastern Poland.

"Test results showed the first outbreak of African swine fever on a farm with five pigs," in the eastern region of Bialystok bordering Belarus, a statement said.

The animals were destroyed and 37 surrounding farms with 192 pigs were put under quarantine, it added.

Meat producers are concerned that the whole country, rather than select counties, will be announced an ASF danger zone.
